Our message to Congress:
We need to pass a strong assault weapons ban like Senator Feinstein has suggested. But we also have to do more. We need our leaders in the White House and Congress to come up with a comprehensive plan that deals with both guns and mental health care.

Senator Feinstein said on Meet the Press yesterday that she intends to introduce legislation banning assault weapons--a law that had been in effect for 10 years starting in 1994 but that the pro-gun lobby made sure was never renewed. Here's what she said: "It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession. Not retroactively but prospectively. And it will ban the same for big clips, drums or strips of more than 10 bullets."With 20 children gunned down in their own school--along with six adults, this is literally the least we can do.But we need to do more. Can you sign this petition telling Congress to immediately pass Senator Feinstein's assault weapons ban and then work on a comprehensive plan to deal with both guns and mental health?
